ObituaryIt is with profound sadness we inform the demise of Old Ben Patrick Denipitiya who passed away in Canada last morning, (24th March 2013) at the age of 78.

Late Patrick Denepitiya was a legendary Sri Lankan Music Director and composer, a talented musician who famously introduced the Hawaiian guitar to the country’s music scene decades ago. He made an immense contribution to Sri Lanka's music industry and the most memorable contribution being, directing the Music in the famous Sinhala films “Sanakeliya” in 1974.

Late Patrick resided in Brampton Ontario, Canada with his wife Celcie.

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
